I've recently created a new author website, EdwardTrimnellBooks.com.
A dedicated "author corporate presence" site was long overdue, now that I have six novels and one collection of short stories on the market.
The volume of fiction samples and promotional content that I need to post online in order to properly market my novels and short story collections has simply outgrown the blog.
I know that the audience here is mainly interested in nonfiction content, and a sudden, huge post containing novel sample chapters can interrupt the flow.
So will this change what I do here at One Word a Day with Ed Trimnell?
Yes and no. I will probably always make relevant book announcements here. But now that I have the other site, the emphasis here will shift.
A fairly static author site wouldn't be a good vehicle for blogging about time-sensitive topics. In the same way, a dynamic blog isn't the best vehicle for hosting sample chapters of a novel.
For each venue, its proper purpose.
